The Capital University women's basketball team will take part in the #Play4Payne initiative Saturday against No. 21 John Carroll in a showdown for first place in the Ohio Athletic Conference at 3 p.m. at the Capital Center.
The Crusaders are set to show their support for sophomore guard Shelby Sigman (Bellbrook, Ohio) and her family as Sigman's brother, Payne, begins his recovery from a life-threatening car accident late last month.
A senior at Bellbrook High School, Payne was recently transferred to Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, where he will begin rehabilitation treatment for his injuries.
A limited number of #Play4Payne t-shirts remain and will be on sale Saturday for $10. All proceeds will benefit Payne's rehabilitation process and treatment.
Capital joins Bellbrook High School as supporters of the #Play4Payne campaign.
